Turquoise and Gold Stamped
Is there any color combination more classic than turquoise and gold? Probably. But for the purposes of this introduction just go along with it. I wanted to do something that felt refined, and I’ve been ignoring my 70+ Bundle Monster and Red Angel plates. Most of the Bundle Monster plates I have are too small for full nail coverage. But Red Angel still does the trick and has some lovely patterns, perfect for a color combination like this.
This is two coats of China Glaze’s For Audrey, stamped with Orly’s Luxe. I kind of wish I’d gone with Glitz since it’s a bit yellower but either way I think this is a nice combo. I added a layer of Sally Hansen’s Diamond Shine top coat, and then finished with a layer of Seche Vite. The double clear coat serves two purposes: First, Seche Vite performs better over a wet layer, and the turquoise layer needed to be dry before stamping. Second: I find Diamond Shine before Seche Vite makes an ultra glossy, super gloss shine. So glossy, in fact, that I had to angle my fingers in order for the camera to pick up the design rather than glare.
